Somehow we managed to leap out of the house good and early on Saturday morning. We'd planned to go and see Brave at the cinema as it was on a cheapo kids screening at the very nice with comfy seats Picturehouse. Seems lots of other parents had the same idea as only one seat was left when we turned up. Mr had a very good save the day idea of hot choc and cake. Then the day moved into being one of my favourite types of day. The one's that we have hardly ever now we're parents. The kind of day where nothings planned, it just happens and we smile all the way through it.
Mind you, we only had a few of these days as I got pregnant with Miss Rosey the minute we stopped fannying around and got together.
After our cake we listened to a great Skiffle band in the street and had a wonderful people watching time. Time to stop, stand and see all going on around me is another stolen pleasure. Then we give each other a nod, a wink and a grin knowing what the other is thinking.
The Bun's were ready to move on so we went in search of the Jumble Up Sale at the Arts Centre.
Finding these two aprons and curtain made me really glad it was a dark room and these were hidden in a box under a table. If not they wouldn't have waited for me to be delighted with. I'm so excited with these new bits to add to the pile. I also found a floral skirt for Little Bun and a Golly with a wonky neck. I saw him, but refused to buy him. Miss Rosey was a squealer and told Mr who then looked sad until she went and got the Golly for him.
On the way back to the car we passed a museum which used to be a merchants house (one I find a bit creepy) and all three wanted to go in for an explore before heading home. We have a family museum pass so we were in for no more pennies. Knowing some of the curators we know the scary tales associated with the place, it always makes me want to rush through some bits sticking closely to my man.
After a perfect half of the day we got home to be reminded that not everyone had been out living it up and they'd like some food please.
To make the day even better Oliver was on the TV in the afternoon. Little Bun curled up with that, I started on her evacuee day dress (which has been going really well, thank goodness), Miss Rosey got back to her artwork and the boys went for a very long walk.
A good start to the weekend to be sure. Rain stopped play today though so fireworks have been cancelled until tommorow night. 5th November is the proper day anways.
When I was 20, I worked briefly for the Metropolitan Police before I went to University. At the end of the day I had to send out summons to officers to attend court the next day. I was always getting up to mischief with the policemen I worked with. On 4th November I sent out an Appeal in a case of arson for a Fawkes G. officer unknown to Twickenham Station for the 5th. A few hours later the Chief Superintendent from there got me on the phone and gave me an ear bashing for wasting time. I was just amazed they'd not seen it straight off and had a laugh. Ho hum I was only trying to make them smile.
